What's the difference between Roguelike/Roguelites?? I don't know.... and I'm not very intent on getting into that in this article. What I do know, however, is that to give a guideline to our blog and especially to my mind, I define Roguelikes as all those games that arise from the ashes of Rogue (1980) and therefore what I expect to find in this tag are games like Stoneshard , Tangledeep, Tales of Maj'eyal, ADOM and more.
There are many terrifying monsters in the world of games, aren't there? Whether demons or Lovecraftian abominations, we certainly have to deal with plenty of terrifying creatures. So it's a welcome change of pace playing Oaken, which just came out in Early Access. Instead of scary monsters, as we voyage deep into the Great Oak's branches, we'll meet spirits and plants.
Steam Next Fest 2022 featured hundreds of upcoming titles, giving players a glimpse of great things to come. The turn-based offerings were particularly good this time around, and it was hard to whittle down this list to just ten titles. Some are just around the corner, and others have an unspecified release date further down the line, but barring any unforeseen challenges (never a guarantee in today's world) most of these games will be available by the end of 2022.
Once again, it's that time of the year, when every developer works extra hard to make sure they have a demo ready. It's like Christmas, but instead of presents, there is a glorious bounty of demos to try - for all those upcoming games, players have been frothing at the mouth for. This is the main event for most developers - one of the few times when all eyes will be on their projects. Those aren't just potential players these demos will be attracting, either. There are also content creators, who could make or break a game. Now it may not be as grim as this, but it is crazy out there. If you can survive the plethora that is Steam Next Fest, then you can survive anything.
Ciao a tutti and welcome to the first episode of the KEEP AN EYE ON IT of 2022. I hope you are fine and supercharged to face the new year and reach your goals. As for me, I'm very excited to start scouting new promising turn-based project and look forward to new releases.
